San Miguel De Allende

I finally feel motivated and rested enough to sit at my computer and sort through the many photos I shot during my vacation last week. San Miguel de Allende...the colorful colonial town that sits in the state of Guanajuato, about 3 hours north of Mexico City, is where I spent my week. A week that I would say was way too short for the many wonders this place has to offer. The narrow cobble stoned streets are lined with great restaurants, cute cafes, gorgeous boutique hotels, and little shops that are among beautiful homes that only make one wonder what hides behind the old wooden doors and bougainvillea covered/greenery draped walls. Perhaps a lush garden or courtyard?

San Miguel de Allende has a rich artistic life. To feel inspired in this town is an understatement. Just visit Fábrica La Aurora, a former textile mill turned into a design and art center. One can spend an entire day at La Fabrica, from taking a workshop to walking from shops to galleries to dinner to cocktails. It's a one stop shop that is a must visit.

I had such an incredible time with family and met the most wonderful people. I will be posting many more photos of this amazing town in the future, as well as the Day of the Dead festivities. It was such an experience to be in San Miguel de Allende during this time. In the meantime, enjoy these photos from around town.
